Short summary
A 2-year field litter decomposition experiment was conducted along an altitudinal gradient in the eastern Tibetan Plateau. More rapid 2-year C is released from fresh foliar litter at upper elevations compared to lower elevations. However, high C release was observed at low altitudes during winter, but high altitudes exhibited high C release during growing season. The results suggested that the onset of C release in fresh litter could delay in this cold region in the scenario of climate warming.
